A couple weeks ago my water dispenser started dripping. Did some research and went for the easy culprit of air stuck in the system. Ran several gallons through but dripped just the same. I replaced the water inlet valve in the back of the fridge and ran several more gallons through it but it is still dripping at least once every 5 seconds from the dispenser. I took off the cover to the water reservoir and filter in the ceiling of the fridge and noticed there was another sort of inlet valve. Is there a way to test if this is the problem other than just going ahead and replacing that one too?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks

Hi Patrick,

Yes, you found that secondary water inlet valve that is causing this water drip problem.

Here's the water valve for your model, inside the refrigerator section:
WP12956105 Valve


For others following your thread--->You can watch this video to access it:

Just remove the dispenser side plastic water line that goes to it. The dispenser line is the larger diameter one.
